URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 is the ultimate high end digital film camera with second generation electronics, a high frame rate image sensor, and a USB‑C for recording directly to external drives.
URSA Mini Pro is designed to include everything you need in a handheld camera so you can take it anywhere! Unlike cheap plastic cameras, the evenly weighted camera body is made out of a super tough magnesium alloy. It’s a true professional camera with full redundancy on every control, even the power switch! Plus, the familiar broadcast switches and controls allow full setting changes without having to take the camera off your shoulder! There’s an external high visibility backlit LCD status display so you can see critical shooting information, and a 4” foldout touch screen for reviewing shots. That means you don’t have to carry an extra on‑set monitor! You get professional connections such as 12G‑SDI, XLR audio, a built in high quality microphone and more.

Like the world’s best broadcast cameras, URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 features independent controls for direct access to the most important camera settings. Buttons, switches and dials are laid out in a logical order that makes them easy to find by feel while using the viewfinder. This means you’ll be able to adjust settings, add an ND filter or even change frame rate without having to fold out the touchscreen or take the camera off your shoulder.
Different projects require different lenses, which is why URSA Mini Pro G2 feature an interchangeable lens mount. Imagine shooting regular work using a photography lens but then being able to change to a PL mount cinema lens if you get a high end film job. URSA Mini Pro makes that easy because you can quickly switch between EF, PL, B4 and F mount lenses, making it compatible with the widest possible range of professional lenses. That means you can work with high quality EF or F mount photographic lenses, large PL cinema lenses, and even B4 broadcast lenses, all with the same camera! URSA Mini Pro comes standard with an EF mount. Additional optional PL, B4 and F lens mounts can be purchased separately. With URSA Mini Pro, you get a single camera that works with virtually all professional lenses so you can choose precisely the lens you need!
The status display is a high visibility backlit LCD screen that’s designed to be easily seen, even in bright light! The status display shows record timecode, locked timecode and reference timecode, along with the current shooting frame rate, shutter angle, aperture, white balance, ISO and IRIS. It also features a battery indicator, card recording status and audio meters for monitoring levels. The screen’s backlight can be turned on when you’re shooting in dimly lit locations, and off when you’re shooting outdoors and in bright light to increase contrast, making it easy to read under any condition!
When it comes to image quality, URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 operates at a higher resolution and dynamic range that is well beyond traditional motion picture film! You get a 4.6K image sensor that captures up to 4608 x 2592 pixels, which is bigger than full size DCI 4K! The sensor features a massive 15 stops of dynamic range and support for up to 3200 ISO, making URSA Mini Pro G2 perfect for high dynamic range (HDR) projects. Built in active refrigeration ensures maximum dynamic range and low noise, so you get incredibly clean pictures with amazing detail in both the dark shadows and bright highlight areas. In addition, URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 supports high frame shooting at up to 300 frames per second and even better color fidelity! You can also choose the lower cost URSA Mini 4K model with 12 stops of dynamic range when you don’t need the performance and are on a tighter budget.
URSA Mini Pro G2 feature an incredibly wide color gamut that captures more of the visible color spectrum than Rec. 2020, which is vastly larger than the P3 digital cinema color space! Blackmagic Design Generation 4 color science is used to process the raw sensor data, enabling amazingly rich skin tones, natural color response and enormous amounts of dynamic range. Whether you’re shooting a Hollywood blockbuster, an indie film, high end commercial, or a broadcast television show, URSA Mini Pro’s combination of resolution, dynamic range and color gamut delivers amazingly rich and lifelike images!
URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 is a more powerful second generation camera with entirely new electronics and a new high performance image sensor that lets you shoot crystal clear slow motion footage. You can record full sensor 4.6K images up to 120 frames per second, windowed DCI 4K at up to 150 frames per second, and regular windowed 1080 HD at an amazing 300 frames per second.

When it comes to high frame rate shooting, URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 is ideal for fast action sports, high speed nature photography and more!
URSA Mini Pro G2 features both dual CFast 2.0 recorders and dual UHS‑II SD card recorders so you can choose the media that works best for you. CFast cards are ideal for full resolution Blackmagic RAW 12-bit recording, while SD UHS‑II cards are inexpensive and commonly available, making them perfect for recording Blackmagic RAW 5:1, 8:1 or 12:1 files. URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 also features a USB‑C connection so you can connect and record directly to portable SSD drives. Simply choose the media type, insert the cards and start shooting! With dual slots for each media type, you never have to stop recording because when the first card is full, it automatically continues onto the next card. You can even swap the full card for an empty one, all without having to stop recording!
URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 features an innovative high speed USB‑C Expansion Port. USB‑C is quickly becoming standard on all modern computers and devices. The massive bandwidth of USB‑C makes it possible to connect external accessories such as flash drives and SSDs for significantly longer recording times. This can be important when shooting high quality lossless 12‑bit Blackmagic RAW or high frame rate 300 fps images. Best of all, when you’re done shooting you can use the same drive for editing and post production!
The optional Blackmagic URSA Mini SSD Recorder lets you record 12-bit Blackmagic RAW files onto standard 2.5 inch SSD Media with your URSA Mini or URSA Mini Pro cameras! That means you can use commonly available and inexpensive high capacity solid state media! Unlike other types of cards, SSD media is super fast so you can record full resolution 4K and 4.6K 12-bit Blackmagic RAW files. Plus, SSD media comes in much larger sizes so you can record longer without having to change cards! The unique design of the Blackmagic URSA Mini SSD Recorder allows it to attach directly to the back of your URSA Mini or URSA Mini Pro between the camera and the battery. It uses 6G-SDI as a data link to the camera so you don’t have to worry about starting or stopping the SSD recorder. Everything is setup and controlled directly from the camera!
The built in 4 inch fold out touchscreen on URSA Mini Pro G2 and the 5 inch fold out touchscreen on URSAMini 4K are super bright, high resolution color displays with a wide viewing angle that makes them perfect for monitoring and reviewing shots on set! The screen can also show you a “heads up display” overlay with critical information such as format, frame rate, timecode, ISO and more. You even get a histogram, card recording status indicators and audiometers! The fold out touchscreen lets you use the incredible new URSA Mini operating software so you get super fast access to every camera function, ATEM broadcast switcher integration features for live broadcast, digital slate for metadata management and more!
All URSA Mini Pro cameras feature built in Bluetooth that allows you to send and receive commands from up to 30 feet away. Blackmagic Design has also published a new, open protocol and developer API, along with sample code for an iPad app that can control URSA Mini Pro. Now you can create your own remote camera control solutions, digital slate applications, remote color correction software and more! The possibilities are endless and this technology will enable entirely new workflows that were never before possible. Imagine building an app that can jam sync timecode and trigger all cameras to record to their internal media with matching metadata, all at the same time!
Blackmagic URSA Mini cameras are completely customizable so you can create a rig that’s built specifically for your production! You can add accessories like the Blackmagic URSA Viewfinder, URSA Studio Viewfinder, URSA Mini Shoulder Kit and URSA Mini Mic Mount, or choose from hundreds of third party accessories.
